This is a splendid example of a lavoir and well dating all the way back to the 13th century, it is one of the oldest of its kind on the island. The well was in function all the way up until the 1960’s, which evidences the quality of the engineering done back in the Middle Ages. The well could still be functioning, unfortunately a piping job done in the 60’s went wrong and damaged the system severely.
